Haven't we done this thread multiple times and hasn't the outcome always been the Midwest?

How is it the Midwest? I would pick the West, specifically the more coastal areas, as most similar to the major Northeastern metros like NY and Boston (what most people think of when they hear "Northeast" and where most of the population lives anyway). So I guess my answer would be Pacific Coast. High COL (especially coastal CA compared to Northeastern major metros), very liberal, the country's two biggest and influential cities (NYC and LA), important capitals (finance - NYC, tech - SF, entertainment - LA), etc.

In terms of the landscape and historical ties, the Midwest. In terms of the lifestyle and quality of life/economy and demeanor of the people, the West because they are both more urban and mixed-race while the Midwest and South are mostly white with some black.

I agree. Actually a lot of the older neighborhoods in West Coast cities founded in the mid-19th century remind me of the Northeast. Seattle is quite a bit like Buffalo in a lot of ways.

Maybe Southeast. History wise places like Savannah and Charleston, New Orleans, St. Augustine, Richmond share a bond with Philly, Boston, NY, Baltimore, Albany. The 13 original colonies are in the Northeast and Southeast. Florida and North Carolina are filled with Northeast transplants. There are rowhomes in Richmond, VA. Atlanta likes to call itself the "New York of the South". Weather is more similar than people realize, except in Florida and near the Gulf of course. It is the closest distance wise to the main population centers of the Northeast.

This is also true, the South(east in particular) and its history argument as on par with the Northeast.
